Unfortunately, bankruptcy does not discharge all debt. One of the exception is IRS tax liens. Bankruptcy will not get rid of his IRS problem. The medical bills would be discharged, as most other debt. Student loans, child support, attorney's fees for family matters, IRS tax liens, wrongful death judgments are not.
If he has not tried to negotiate with the IRS on this lien, he may want to try that. Bankruptcy costs about 2000.00, you might do better and hire an attorney that specializes in IRS tax liens and see if you can get the amount reduced.
Thanks, I didn't even think about taxes not being included with bankruptcy. I appreciate the advice, wish you could help me more. But I just need to talk to someone about the IRS debt. Thanks, I'll still accept for your time.
